Big Button

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

The last one in this thread series!  I have had this very big button for a long time and have painted it before...actually I bought it to paint!!  Painting the buttons in this series has been good practice for ellipses, still not sure if I have got it right though!!

Some necessary sewing tools that have been well used over the years...especially the quick unpick! The scissors are a favorite pair I've had forever.... and still use them!!

I found this bright lime green cotton and one button so this is painted with the same palette (minus the black) as the previous one.The button is a cloth one and was nowhere as hard to paint as the last ones!!  There will be another couple for this series, I couldn't help myself!  I enjoy finding ways of setting up and it's a way of making use of these sewing tools now that I don't use them like I used to.

Time for another thread painting! There is one more coming next post too. I decided to paint using black and grey and add the green button for a 'pop' of color...because I love green and it's a favorite button of mine!!  The buttons were challenging...good discipline  for me....not in a hurry to do more!!

This is the last one of my three birds.. I found only one pelican when I was on holiday in Australia recently. I love their large pink bills.They are real characters so I am hoping to find a few more to paint  next time I go back there.
